UNBELIEVABLE!

I was playing the Pied Piper this afternoon on the way home from school. But in lieu of a flute I was attracting a growing crowd of children with my poor overheated Labrador.

Suddenly three more kids ran up, breathless and excited. They were completely indignant and started shouting in a rising crescendo:

"Betsy, Betsy!"
"Those boys over there just picked some pears!"
"YEAH, from a yard over there that doesn't even belong to them!!!"
"And now they're eating them!!!!"

And then came the most heinous transgression:

"AND THEY DIDN'T EVEN WASH THEM!!!"

Those boys will go far! We've been fruit-picking, too. We tried some of the mirabelles and plums ripening in the new garden yesterday. And we didn't even wash them!
